Stretching along 250 miles of the coast of British Columbia on Canada’s west coast is the Great Bear Rainforest. It is the largest coastal temperate rain forest in the world that is still intact and is the home to extensive tracts of Sitka spruce, giant hemlock and red cedar. Below these mighty trees are minks, coastal wolves, the largest grizzly bears in Canada and the rare Kermode bear or spirit bear. These are actually black bears with a recessive gene mutation that causes them to be born with fur in a cream color and are the most celebrated resident in the forest.
